3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a thick two fingers of tan head on a black body.
The aroma is great: roasted malt and chocolate.
The taste follows suit but with a mild bitter bite at the end.
The texture is smooth and soft with moderate carbonation.
It hits all the notes for the style with an added extra bitterness.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From the April 2013 3R6P beer tasting. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a small brown head that faded and left minimal lacing. The aroma was sweet chocolate, faint coffee, vanilla and a touch of smoke and port wine. The flavor was dry, bitter, roasty and smoky with a bit of coffee. Medium length dry, roasty and smoky finish. Medium body. Eh.

Pitch Black Color with a Very Brown Head. Sweet aroma of oatmeal, milk chocolate, malts and barley. Flavor is a sweet mix of chocolate, oatmeal, coffee and malts. Excellent stout overall and definitely one of my favor beers I’ve had in a while

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
~Mild coffee like roasted grain aroma with sweet milk
~Pours black with quickly disappearing brown head.
~Sweet nutty bready flavor balanced with roasted coffee.
~Medium bodied with medium high CO2. Lasting bitter coffee finish.
~Enjoyable oatmeal stout. Could drink a lot of these, but nothing really stands out making this better than other oatmeal stouts.

Bottle. An average stout that works just fine but does nothing special. Like the Honda Civic of stouts.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A nice black color with a head that settles off to nothing. Sweet milk chocolate aroma. Rich, sweet, roasty, chocolatey taste, much like a milk-stout.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours ebony black with a thick mop of tan foam. Nose is malt and coffee. Thick and creamy on the palate, this well balanced stout bursts with chocolate, malt, coffee and molasses flavors while a suggestion of hops helps provide a semi-dry finish. An excellent stout. Pairs well with red meats- exceptional with venison steak.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark brown. Smells of sweet roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate. Taste is a smooth balance of chocolate, coffee, caramel, toffee, roasted malt, and lightly bitter hops. Very good balance of flavors, but the taste is somewhat static -- it would be more interesting if the flavors and balance were more dynamic. Still a good beer that is delightful and smooth.
